Anaheim PD Collecting Holiday Toys, Donations for Needy Families  

OC Register shot from last year's effort

The Anaheim Police Department’s Cops 4 Kids program announced today that it hopes to exceed last year’s effort to provide holiday gifts to more than 600 children and hot turkey dinners to more than 125 families.

“For many kids, the holiday season means presents, parties and friends. However, the reality is that many kids won’t have a Christmas this year,” says Phyllis O’Neal, Cops 4 Kids board president, in a letter to potential donors. “Coming from unstable homes with little or no money, these kids are often lucky to receive a hot meal, let alone a brightly-wrapped gift.”

It’s the third year C4K is delivering gifts and meals (donated by Downtown 195 Grill) to Anaheim families.
The charity hopes to raise $20,000 this year.
